You'll want to run ~mailman/bin/mmsitepass.

My trouble is that I can get in with the sire administrator password
ONLY.  When I create a new list, I can't use the list admin password,
and don't know how to give out passwords for list-only administrators
without giving out the entire site password (which I won't do, so it's a
maintenance headache for me personally).
